My Sky

We’re looking for images you’ve taken of your sky—whether those images are of galaxies captured through a telescope or perhaps pictures of an incredible night sky, an eclipse, a star party, or a rocket launch. We can’t guarantee that we’ll publish every image and story—but we will look at each and every one and will showcase as many as possible here on our website and a few might make it to our magazine, The Planetary Report. We look forward to seeing your Sky.

My fascination with Space began on a Trinity Academy school trip to Calton Hill Observatory Edinburgh, where I first viewed the Moon and the night sky through a telescope.

My flying saucer, called Moonship Phoenix, requires further research and development. I joined the Society July 23, 2019. ... more »
